Hi Graham,

Looks very good!
I envy the fact you seem to have more time to build than me at the moment...

Good luck on the trial run sunday!

Regards, Jan.

Beautiful boat and superb build!

Are you going to apply some washes to really bring out the details?

Hi thanks for comments.
Hope to try some weathering.



Boat back in water have changed setup to 30mm props and made rudder slightly deeper did try larger props but to much power could not control at full throttle it does run well with 30mm props at full throttle.

Can now add rest of fittings to finish boat.

hi Graham
 
As far as I can see there is only one more job to do on this superb build and that is put it in a glass case well done.   Now whats on the cards to build now that you have an empty workbench.

Hi Graham,

Congratulations on a smashing build!

Could you elaborate on the props issue please?
In what way does the boat get out of control?

From my point of view you could run a tad faster, so the steps start to work, making the hull run more free.
But that's coming from a lunatic, who tends to run his planing scale hulls way too fast...

The boat runs very nice in the pictures, but we'd like to see a video, if possible...

Regards, Jan.

Hi Jan,

Thanks for comments.
I know what you mean about more than scale speed most of my planing hulls are like that.

The Mas with larger props at full throttle seems to push the bow down,at part throttle it planes quite well.
With the smaller props the hull planes at part throttle and maintains this position at full throttle probably doing a scale 60 knots? but still handles well.

It all comes down to personal satisfaction.
Might be able to organize a video in the future I will see what I can do.

Hi Graham,

The bow being pushed down is a combination of the propshaft angle and the propchoice, if the props generate a fair amount of lift, changing them for props that have less lift will make a difference.

But the propshaft angle isn't that easy to change...

Judging by the pictures, the hull runs a tad wet, or it runs at that speed where the steps are about to level out the hull after which it'll run quicker and the transom gets up more, but I'd have to see some running video to be able to confirm or deny that.

Regards, Jan.
